Synopsis

In the satiric and funny sequel to the witty Vampire High, Cody's hopes for a great sophomore year at Vlad Dracul are dashed when his train wreck of a cousin, Turk Stone, moves in and messes with his life.
 
Turk's a brilliant teen artist and goth with a sky-high ego . Her attitude infuriates the vampire (jenti) students, especially the dark, brooding Gregor. But something changes in Turk when she stumbles on the abandoned nineteenth-century mill in the forgotten district of Crossfield and immediately claims it as her new arts center project.
 
Though Cody resents his cousin at first, he has his own reasons for helping make Turk's dream come true. But Crossfield has many secrets, and a mysterious vampire army called the Mercians will do anything to make sure they stay hidden. And when he takes on the Mercians, everything Cody has learned about courage and determination his freshman year at Vampire High will be tested.

Excerpt

There's a thing the jenti do that's called the Rustle. It's nothing you can really hear. But if you hang around them long enough, you can tell when it's happening. It's a way they have of telling each other something is changing. Asking, "Have you noticed?" and "What do you think about it?" without ever moving their lips. Jenti may act as though they couldn't care less what's going on, but they always know when something is.
 
And Turk was something to Rustle about. As soon as she pulled up in her little black Volksbug and parked in a slot that was big enough for a stretch limo, and the four of us got out, it started.
 
New kid, coming in with Ileana (the Princess) Antonescu, and Cody (the Original Gadje) Elliott, and Justin (World's First Swimming Jenti) Warrener, and who does she think she is, one of us? And if she doesn't, what does she think she is?
 
It was a fair question. Turk had decked herself out in black leather, even though the day was hot, and from her ears and around her neck dangled shards of mirror that flashed and glittered every time she moved. She wore the jewel Ileana had given her hanging on her forehead, and on her neck she'd drawn two black dots and written the words Open Here.
